EnCana case moved to Dawson Creek


The first court appearance in the EnCana case has determined that it will be moved to Dawson Creek.
The court appearance had been scheduled to occur in Fort St. John, but it was recommended by both the Crown and the defense that the case should be moved to Dawson Creek.
The Ministry of the Environment has filed two charges against the corporation. EnCana is charged with introducing business-related waste into the environment and failing to report a spill of a polluting substance.
The charges are in relation to a sour gas leak that occurred in November of 2009. The leak was caused by sand that had eroded a piece of pipeline infrastructure, called a ‘Tee’.
The next hearing is set for Dec. 7 in Dawson Creek.
